Love Drinks is ready to introduce the latest launch from The Bitter Truth: Tiki Lovers Pineapple Rum.

The newcomer joins The Bitter Truth’s eclectic range of cocktail bitters, artisan liqueurs, blossom waters and flavoured spirits, and it is available immediately to the off-trade.

Samantha Burke, Love Drinks’ new managing director, said: ““The Bitter Truth is a hugely respected brand throughout the bar industry with its high-quality, innovative range of seasonings, syrups and spirits synonymous with the best cocktails.  Following the huge success of the company’s Pink Gin last year, we expect the unique Tiki Lovers Pineapple Rum to make a similar sort of splash this summer as the weather heats up and the ‘Tiki Season’ begins in earnest.”

Tiki Lovers Pineapple Rum is made using a blend of aged and unaged Jamaican pot-still rums, 3-year old Barbados rum, aged in former Bourbon Whiskey barrels and some young column-still rums from Trinidad and Guyana. The rum-blend is then infused with pineapple extract from South America and it is allowed to rest for several weeks.

The rum, priced at £33 per bottle, is described as being “bold, vibrant and taste-rich” with both the pineapple and the rum characteristics being given space to shine. It is recommended with a mixer for tropical drinks or with ginger beer on ice.

The Bitter Truth was established in 2006 by former bartenders Stephan Berg and Alexander Hauck in Germany.
